    I am trying to find out some information about two of my great uncles, my grandad's brother and my grandma's brother.

    All I know is their names, rough age and that they trained out in Banff, Alberta as pilots. I think they, or at least one of them, ended up flying Spitfire and he sadly did not survive being shot down in the war.

    I just wondered if anyone has or knows where to find information about what squadron they flew with, where they were based after training etc and where their graves may be. My grandma thinks her brother-in-law may have a grave in Northern France, is this possible?

    I am thinking of getting in touch with BBMF at RAF Coningsby, Lincs to see if they hold any information about my uncles.

    Thank you in advance for your time.

    As the OP hasn't been on the forum since 2014 he/she is unlikely to see your message unless you send he/she a PM.

    Understood Steve......I just like to go thru posts every once in a while to see if any have not been answered at all....and then try to lend a hand, if I can. I know that some of these are “old” and as you said, if they have it set up to watch the post, or get a’s the only way they may get the message without checking back......but at least I tried

    Thank you
